When we demanded back in June for elected bigot Sally Kern to get the hell out of office, little did we know that a transgender attorney might be the one to help the cause.
Kern, the Republican Oklahoma House member, wasn't Queerty's No. 2 Homophobe of the Year by chance. She's cultivated a niche of hating on gay Americans, with brash public statements and alignments with groups like Americans For Truth About Homosexuality. But now, a challenger to her House seat.
She's Brittany Novotny, an attorney from Kern's Oklahoma City, and she's considering a campaign against Kern for the House District 84 seat. Novotny is in the beginning stages of her campaign, but she is moving forward; she's filed the necessary paperwork to begin collecting funds, reports Gossip-Boy.
"I'm exploring a run for House District 84 because we need a representative who values all families in the district, who is dedicated to bringing good jobs to Oklahoma, and who will work tirelessly to make sure our children are getting the best education in our public schools," said Novotny (pictured on right, with megaphone) in an earlier statement. "I believe I have the experience, drive, and determination to do that."
